The future of AC Milan has ‘never been so uncertain’ as we approach the summer, according to Sky Italia journalist Manuele Baiocchini.
There is still conflicting speculation in the media regarding whether Stefano Pioli will stay on as head coach or leave, whether Ralf Rangnick will arrive in some capacity and whether Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will depart.
In addition to this there is plenty of uncertainty regarding a number of key players such as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and captain Alessio Romagnoli.
Manuele Baiocchini spoke to Milan at Sky Italia (via MilanNews) to offer an update on the Rossoneri’s situation, beginning by claiming that CEO Ivan Gazidis started contacts with Rangnick last December.
These talks apparently led to agreements which would have a financial penalty for Milan if they were to back out of the deal. After weeks and months of speculation, Gazidis himself reassured Pioli that he will be Milan’s coach of the future.
Baiocchini adds that Pioli will finish the season regardless but that results between now and the end of the campaign could determine his fate.
Despite the fact that Milan in the last five years have had six head coaches and three different owners, it seems this is the most precarious that everything has been.
